Life may imitate art, but memes certainly are cartoonish and hilariously bare reflections of life. This is true of Twitter’s latest shining meteor: a cartoon still of the character Rolf from Ed, Edd n Eddy. In the image, Rolf stares thoughtfully out of a window. What is he looking at? That’s what the memes are here to find out.
The early 2000s Cartoon Network show has been over for nearly a decade, but people on the internet always find ways to conjure up nostalgic images, remove their context, and seamlessly embed it back into the pop culture vocabulary of today. Rolf is no longer Rolf. Instead, he’s been transformed into irked fuck boys, Joe Budden, drive-thru employees, and Mike Epps' character Day Day from Friday.
Unfortunately for anyone seeing these memes and longing for an Ed, Edd n Eddy revival, the show’s creator Danny Antonucci has said it’s never going to happen. Still, you can enjoy some of these ingenious and creative Rolf memes below.
